The Jazz are expected to take it slow with rookie Trey Burke and he might not start regularly this season, a source tells Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears.

The Jazz traded for Burke on Thursday night after the Timberwolves took him with the ninth overall choice. It was presumed he would come in and start next season, but Spears points out that John Stockton didn't start regularly until his fourth season, while Deron Williams only started 47 games as a rookie. Mo Williams, who started at PG for Utah last season, is a free agent and reportedly won't re-sign with the Jazz if it means he'll be backing up Burke. Even if they Jazz don't re-sign Williams, expect them to add at least one veteran point guard to help Burke along. Having said all that, we still think there's a pretty decent chance Burke will be starting a majority of games at point guard for the Jazz next season.

James Harden needed to go to the locker room in the first half due to a hamstring injury on Saturday and did return in the second quarter, finishing with 18 points, six rebounds, 14 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers during a 104-97 loss.

He played 39 minutes and the injury didn't seem to bother him much. The Rockets are off until Monday when they'll get a much anticipated rematch against the Blazers, so Harden owners can expect him to suit up for that one. Of course there is a chance he deals with soreness.

Derrick Favors played just 18 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with 13 points, five boards, two assists and one block.

There is no injury to worry about, and it was coach Quin Snyder's decision to keep him on the bench. The Jazz were blown out in this one, so this line should be taken with a grain of salt. Favors exploded for 23 points and 10 boards on Wednesday, so he should be able to bounce back in his next game. Keep him active in all lineups.
Dec 20 - 10:37 PM

Rudy Gobert grabeed his first career double-double in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with 11 points, 12 boards, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes.

This was a fantastic showing for Gobert, and this is the kind of line he can drop when he is given the minutes. This game reiterates the fact that Gobert should be owned in all leagues going forward, and he will only get better as his role grows towards the end of the season.

Danny Green and Tiago Splitter have been benched for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

He was not listed in the starting lineup and coach Gregg Popovich just kept them on the bench. Green has played magnificent basketball and certainly deserved the night off. He's been the biggest steal of fantasy drafts and should get it going on Monday against the Clippers.
Dec 20 - 10:19 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is probable to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

It would be a shock to see him sit out based on how terrific he looked in his return on Thursday. Cousins refused to take a minutes limit and played 33 minutes, so he'll probably be around 35-37. He's going to have a late supper and eat big time. Start him.
Dec 20 - 9:57 PM

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist double-doubled in a win over the Jazz on Saturday, finishing with 13 points, 11 boards, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 33 minutes.

He was fantastic all game long and was an absolute pest on the defensive end. MKG shot 4-of-8 from the field on Saturday, and has shown a lot of growth in his shooting technique. The minutes are going to be there for him from here on out, and it's time for standard league owners to take notice.
Dec 20 - 9:53 PM

Al Jefferson tweaked his groin in Saturday's win over the Jazz, finishing with 19 points, 10 boards and one assist in 27 minutes.

He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and did not return, but Big Al said after the game that he could have played if the team needed him. The injury doesn't appear to be serious, so we will leave him off of the injury report for now. However, owners will still want to check back before Monday's game against Denver to make sure that he is good to go.
Dec 20 - 9:45 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge made 12-of-20 from the field for 27 points against the Pelicans on Saturday during a 114-88 win, adding 12 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 29 minutes.

It's not often Anthony Davis isn't the best power forward on the court on a given night, but LMA carved him up all night. He is coming off a 32-point game from Friday and has a double-double in 15 of his last 17 games. The Blazers are on a five-game winning streak and they'll look to extend it on Monday at Houston. Aldridge is one of the best fantasy big men around.
Dec 20 - 9:37 PM

Anthony Davis made 3-of-14 from the field against the Blazers on Saturday with seven points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and five blocks in 28 minutes.

He was actually held in check by Joel Freeland tonight and he had an up-close view of LaMarcus Aldridge hitting midrange jumpers all night. Davis didn't shoot below 33.3 percent from the field in any of his previous games, so this is obviously is worst offensive showing. He gets a date with Serge Ibaka on Sunday.
Dec 20 - 9:14 PM

James Harden strained his hamstring in Saturday's game vs. the Hawks, but has since returned.

This is incredible news for the Rockets, and it looks like Harden dodged a bullet here. We will obviously monitor him closely, and we will provide updates as needed. Stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 8:49 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He has some sort of muscle strain and it sounds like he's going to miss time. Arthur is hurt far too often, so expect J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried to plck up most of the minutes at power forward. Wilson Chandler also plays some four, too.
